It’s Celebrate Diversity month! The world is very diverse and it is important to embrace all cultures. A good way to practice acceptance of other cultures is to be aware of the foods they enjoy and try their cultural dishes. Here are a few popular foods from other cultures to try and add some exotic flavor to your diet!
- Falafel: Falafel is a fried ball of ground chickpeas that is popular in middle east cultures. These vegetarian fritters are a great addition to a sandwhich or topped on a salad!
- Ratatouille: Ratatouille is a french vegetable dish with eggplant, peppers, garlic, olive oil and tomato sauce. Yum! This hearty meal is a healthy treat.
- Tikka Masala: This Indian dish usually includes chicken in a spiced curry sauce. Often served over rice, this is a great meal to add some new spice to your life.
- Sushi: Sushi is a Japanese dish of seafood, vegetables and sometimes fruit wrapped in seaweed and rice. This dish is a good way to get some seafood in the diet to add healthy fats and minerals to the body.
We encourage you to try something to eat this month from a different culture that you have never tried. It is a fun and healthy way to embrace new cultures and celebrate diversity!
